    When moving into a new home...

    Advertisements
    ... and having NOTHING, what would you all say (all of you who live on your own or with SO's) are the MOST IMPORTANT things you needed when you first moved into a new place?

    Mainly if you didn't have something when you moved out on your own and you found yourself needing it often, what would it be? (did that even make any sense? )


    My DH and I are finally moving into our own place next month and I'm just at a loss as to what we neeeeed vs what I feel like I may need/want.


    I've got a vacuum!! We bought that this weekend.

    We have a washer/dryer in the unit we're renting and a microwave. We bought furniture that will be delivered on July 5th. We're going to paint a few rooms first before we start moving things in.

    Shower curtain, trash BAGS, toilet paper, paper towel, necessities like that. Maybe some paper plates/bowls so you wont have to worry about dishes right at first?

    Cookware. That was the biggest thing. When we first moved into our apartment we got a mattress, our cookware and a lamp for the living room because there were no other light sources other than a window.

    plates
    silverware
    cups
    baking dishes
    pans
    cooking utensils
    hand mixer
    food chopper
    rice cooker
    foil
    pam/olive oil
    seasonings (but those can be bought progressively because they can get expensive if purchased all at once)

    "The purpose of life is not to simply be happy. It is to be useful, to be honorable, to be compassionate, to have it make some difference that you have lived and lived well."
    - Ralph Waldo Emerson

    We also had a few nice smelling candles for our first day in our apartment. That set a nice laid back mood as we moved things around.
